SUNY Buffalo State creates long-term, meaningful partnerships with community agencies through service-learning, volunteering, and other experiential opportunities for students.
These partnerships, designed to benefit both the students and the community, are the result of an increasing understanding nationwide that higher education institutions have a responsibility to the communities in which they are located. Service-learning is an important and growing movement in civic engagement and education at SUNY Buffalo State
